Summary

As you may know, four years ago, ESA, the Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Project of the WCRP and EGU organized the first EO and Cryosphere Science Conference in ESRIN. This meeting will be a followup to that meeting. We will be looking for a wide discussion and networking forum for the cryosphere, climate, hydrology, modeling and EO communities to review the latest advances in the use of EO for cryosphere science and discuss the main scientific opportunities and research challenges for the future.

The purpose of this topical conference, jointly organized by ESA and CliC, is:

  • To assess recent progress in the full range of cryosphere relevant EO-based observations and techniques;
  • To review the major scientific advances in cryosphere science;
  • To discuss the challenges and opportunities in cryosphere science offered by the new generation of EO satellites as well as the major observational gaps for the coming decades;
  • To consolidate a scientific roadmap outlining the main priorities and challenges for the cryosphere community in terms of novel observations, enhanced EO-based products and techniques and innovative scientific results.

Please, submit your abstracts before the 16th October 2015 using the dedicated link on the ESA Living Planet Symposium Website (see above). Ensure to select "Cryosphere" as theme for your abstract.
